A net is considered a special weapon – a weapon that does no damage. A weapon that can turn the tide in a battle though!
The wielder makes an attack roll which if successful, restrains the opponent until freed. To free, the trapped creature or its allies makes a DC10 Strength check as an action. If at least 5 slashing damage(AC 10) is given to the net, the restrained creature is freed,and the net destroyed.
Some things to note:
- only works on large or smaller creatures
- will not work on formless creatures
- and in a round, using a net is the only attack a creature can make – regardless of how many actions, attacks, bonus actions, or reactions a creature gets.
Important: a restrained creature’s movement = 0, the have DIS on attacks, and most of all attacks against them have ADV!
